I’ve had a mini- obsession with the modernist Danish furniture company Hay ever since I wandered through their flagship store in Denmark many years ago, and I’ve always appreciated Ikea’s commitment to bringing design to the masses. Now the two have created a dream partnership with a 30-piece-strong Ypperlig collection that the Swedish giant will be releasing this month, which features storage vessels, coffee tables, lamps, benches— even a rethink of Ikea’s classic blue and yellow tote. The minimalist (spring mattress!) sofa bed here is one of my favourites, with dowel- like legs and the so-simple- it’sbeautiful seat rest and back.
Ypperlig sofa bed $799, available at Ikea, ikea.ca
